Any feedback on these plants before i buy them online? nearly all tropica #2
First time co2 user and a new tank set up, any comments or feedback on my plant suggestions? is this too many for a 240 tank? how many should i buy of each? I do not have a great knowledge when it comes to plants so any advice would be very appreciated.


Delicate Ammannia
straight vallis
giant red totala
spadeleaf plant
mexican oakleaf
dwarf helzine
glossostigma
hygrophilla
grassplant
undukate crptocoryne
echinodorus redflame
tiger lotus

I will be usung fluval straum as the substrate mixed with ferts and co2. I would like that beautiful carpet effect as well.

Fluval Stratum. Do I need the power as well? #3
I have a new roma 240 tank and I am about to hardscape and set up. I have fluval strautum as the base of my tank. Do I need to buy some more fine powder to put over the top of the base layer? I am wanting a community tank and including a few snails and shrimp for the ground crew clean up.

Do i need the finer powder as well?

Re: New keeper : Q : When do I use all these products in the tank? #7
Fluvals a good brand though no? don't want to have to buy another product when i have a full unopened fluval one.

I am going to record my journey setting up the new tank.

Best place to buy Hardscape and Dragon Stones in Yorkshire, Leeds -England? #8
Hello all,

As I am setting up a new tank and will be hardscaping and planting in the next couple of weeks for a fishless cycle of a new roma 240 I wanted to ask where is the best place to buy wood and stone? my local garden centres have very little in the way of choice and are usually small pieces at extortionate prices.

Buying online is cheaper but you do not know what shapes or pieces you are buying.

Q: Any suggestions on places in Yorkshire area that have a good stock of stone and wood for tropical hardscaping? I am a bit lost with where to go and find a good supplier of all things of the fishy goodness variety.

I am based in Leeds, but open to travel to get some good hardscape materials.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Andy.

Re: New keeper : Q : When do I use all these products in the tank? #9
As from my abpve post this seems to be recommended what do you think? will buy a measuring pipette although it says 1 dropper gallon on bottle.

Re: New keeper : Q : When do I use all these products in the tank? #10
Thank you for your response. If i use the biological enhancer just once? when i first start my tank up, why is the bottle so big don't we just put in a small amount at start? do we ever use it again?

Do I need to buy some ammonia as well as use the biological enhancer?

So for Ammonia I need to add 7.2ml of Ammonia, can you buy it from fish shop? I will be going this after noon, how do you measure how much your putting in?
